2019 Academy Awards Odds
The 2019 Oscar season has arrived with a quickness and this year’s event will not be short on drama. The dripping sarcasm at the Academy’s event won’t likely find a litter of commentary in Sunday night’s ceremony due to the fact there is not host for the show. Actor and comedian Kevin Hart was nixed from the show due to his tweeter rhetoric and as a result the award presenters will be responsible for most of the political jokes between trophy handoffs.
The Oscars affair will still find all 24 categories being awarded and on the air. Furthermore as is the perception the most anticipated portion of the show will be which movie is poised to win the shiniest statue of them all and take the Oscar for best picture?
Alfonso Cuarón’s black-and-white art film “Roma” is a critical favorite that took the top trophy from the Directors Guild of America.
Note for those considering taking a plunge into the Oscars Futures water; no foreign-language film has never won best picture, let alone one distributed by a streaming service and in this case Netflix.
Second note for props patrons; while the drama and comedy hybrid “Green Book” earned top honors by the Producers Guild of America the powers-that-are for the 2019 Oscars failed to nominate a best-director from the film
Just a handful of months back, weeks according to some movie pundits, the film “A Star Is Born” was considered a slam dunk to earn best-film. The rock-and-role pseudo autobiography checks in at 16-1 odds to be crowned best-picture.
